WonderCon is always a good time to get a glimpse of what’s coming in new seasons of the shows you just can’t help but watch. For Fear the Walking Dead fans, this year’s WonderCon panel featured series stars Lennie James, Colman Domingo, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, new crossover character Austin Amelio, along with surprise guest and returning cast member Ruben Blades and executive producers and showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, executive producer Scott M. Gimple and director Michael Satrazemis.
The panel discussed what’s next with the show and shared the official lowdown on Fear the Walking Dead Season 5:
In Season 5, the group’s mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what’s left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won’t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.
To keep things interesting in Zombieland, the network premiered the trailer for Season 5 of Fear the Walking Dead:
